Theatre & Performing Arts

The Watermill Theatre, a converted Grade II listed rural watermill nestled on the banks of the river Lambourn, is a unique producing powerhouse of residential and artistic facilities which provide a crucible for creativity, innovative storytelling and artistic excellence. The Watermill’s work is characterised by an enduring pursuit of artistic innovation and the weaving of actor-musicianship through new writing and reinvigorated classics. They tell stories that reflect and celebrate diverse lived experiences, create the environment for actors and creatives to take risks, and connect annual audiences of 60,000 with live theatre that truly resonates.

With a core belief in the transformative power of the arts, The Watermill Theatre open opportunities for people from lower socio-economic backgrounds, young families and isolated or displaced communities to explore their own creativity. Their engagement programmes reach 20,000 people each year in the theatre, schools and other community settings. The theatre engages with those who are underrepresented, hard to reach, or at risk and drives long term impact for its communities.

Reaching far beyond the 200 seats in its auditorium, The Watermill’s productions regularly transfer to the West End or tour nationally and internationally.  Over the last five years, half of its productions have had a further life beyond The Watermill including Bleak Expectations, SPIKE, Amelie the Musical, Tell Me on a Sunday and Crazy for You.  The Watermill’s central ethos is to commission, discover and amplify new voices to create work that excites audiences now and will become part of the theatrical canon in the future.
